A loan of $775 helped to buy sugar, guava, honey, and other ingredients to make sweets.


Lorenza's story

Ms. Lorenza is a previous client of the foundation. She is married to Mr. Gilberto, and they live in their own home in the city of Luque. The whole family has worked selling sweets since 1994. Lorenza is a person who has always worked and fought for her family. It is because of this that she does well, as she knows that working is the only way to get ahead. She is asking for this loan to buy sugar, guava, honey, and other ingredients necessary for her to continue making sweets so that she can always offer high-quality products to her customers.
